Damn, it’s been so long guys. I HAVE MISSED YOU! It feels like we haven’t spoken in so long but I’m so thrilled to be back posting my Business Bites links. Have you missed me too?
♥ This is something we get asked a lot at The Blogcademy:
How early should you monetise a blog?
♥ The brand is a story. But it’s a story about you, not about the brand.
♥ How do I get my small business noticed?
♥ How to politely turn down a client♥
Are comparisons the root of all evil?
♥ If you’re a wedding photographer, you probably won’t have failed to noticed that double exposures are all the rage right now. This simple tutotial explains how you can achieve the look with the Canon Mark III.

♥ How to talk about good news without annoying everybody♥ The way my blog looks has always been just as important to me as the content that I post, so I couldn’t agree more with this article by web designer Matthew Butterick. He urges us to
make the web expensive. It’s a long one, but worth the read…
“It’s now or never for the web. The web is a medium for creators, including designers. But after 20 years, the web still has no culture of design excellence. Why is that? Because design excellence is inhibited by two structural flaws in the web. First flaw: the web is good at making information free, but terrible at making it expensive. So the web has had to rely largely on an advertising economy, which is weakening under the strain. Second flaw: the process of adopting and enforcing web standards is hopelessly broken. Evidence of both these flaws can be seen in a) the low design quality across the web, and b) the speed with which publishers, developers, and readers are migrating away from the web, and toward app platforms and media platforms. This evidence strongly suggests that the web is on its way to becoming a second-class platform. ”

Business Bites: Working Like a Machine…
July 5, 2013
My feet have not touched the ground since I got home on Wednesday night... I literally feel like an old machine cranking back up to full speed... I'll get there but it might take me a few days! I'm not going to lie though, I'm feeling quite overwhelmed and a little stressed out about everything I have on right now, but it's all good, I'm just taking each day hour at a time! Sheesh maybe I need to write a blog post titled 'How to get shit done in no time at all...'
Business Bites: Get Over It and Get It Done
November 22, 2013
Late one night this week, as I was battling the jet lag and working on blog posts way past 3am, I was simultaneously having an email conversation with Paul Jarvis: web designer, writer and all round awesome dude, If you haven't obsessed over Paul's work yet by the way, where have you been?

Business Bites: Giving Up Guilt
October 11, 2013
It's the same old song and dance. I got to Australia for our final leg of The Blogcademy 2013 tour in a little under two weeks (cue major freak out!) and so I'm spending most of my waking hours desperately trying to get as much blog content written and scheduled for while I'm away. This is no mean feat when you have at least two blog posts per day for three and a half weeks to do (not to mention the blog posts before I go as well!) ARGH.

Business Bites: Sweet Teeth & Party Time
August 2, 2013
Considering I don't have a sweet tooth at all, I sure do pin a lot of pretty sweet treats... hum, I wonder what that says about my psyche? I hope you've all had a brilliant and productive week. I'm really looking forward to this weekend because I'm going out - not once but twice! Sheesh, what a party animal. Now excuse me I better go and grab a quick disco nap before the chaos commences!

I wanted to introduce a links post in the same vein as Thursday Treats the Green Room, and so after umming & ahhing over the perfect name, I thought to hell with it, I'll just keep it simple, cheesy and memorable. So behold Business Bites!
